Samba, cachaça, moqueca, glitter, fun, good energy, old samba tunes and excellent artwork all around the venue. What more can you want for an elegant Carnival night?
January and February are a bit yuck, slow and lazy… so, in Brazil, we wait for carnival to truly kick off the new year! After a week of festivities, dancing and fun, people head back to their offices on Ash Wednesday, and the new year begins, usually with a hell of a hangover!
We brought the spirit of Carnival to London for our first supper club (Mixed Session). There was live music, heaps of hearty food, artwork, wonderful people and plenty of dancing.
